Dr Sheena Azar
Sheena studied Biomedical Science at the University of Melbourne, achieving Honours, and then spent time as a research scientist at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute at the Royal Children’s Hospital. It wasn’t long before she decided to pursue the dream of medicine, and subsequently completed her studies at the Australian National University in Canberra. Since 2010, Sheena has completed her internship and residency at the Austin and Northern Hospitals. She has also managed to juggle the arrival of two children whilst completing her general practice training. Being the mother of two young boys she yearns for those times when she could just go to the movies, or a run, or read a book or even do some crafts. She is hopeful that she can return to these pastimes now that she has become a Fellow of the RACGP and the kids are at school. Sheena has an interest in family medicine, including children’s and women’s health – she does Implanon insertion. Sheena loves general practice because she has the opportunity to meet and learn from people from all walks of life, and it sometimes lets her practice her broken French and Dari (Persian) too.
